MTG Innistrad: Crimson Vow cards worth money

A total of seven cards remain valued at $10 or higher after the global launch of VOW.

The second half of Innistrad in Magic: The Gathering Standard, Crimson Vow, is bringing about a total of 64 Rare and 20 Mythic Rare cards that could be worth money. 

A digital launch for Innistrad: Crimson Vow took place on Nov. 11, followed by the global release on Nov. 19. A week after the digital release, 12 VOW cards were priced at $10 or higher. Following the global launch, only seven were still valued at $10 or higher. Values are subject to change weekly. All entries on the VOW cards worth money list will be updated bi-weekly following the global launch.

From dragons and beasts to vampire nobles and planeswalkers, here are the VOW cards worth money following the release of Innistrad: Crimson Vow.  

Necroduality

Necroduality

Necroduality, a Mythic Rare Enchantment, makes a copy of a nontoken zombie when it enters the battlefield. The Enchantment improves zombie builds in Standard and will likely have a major impact on the Commander format.

Necroduality hit a price spike with the digital launch of VOW, rising to $29.50 before dropping down to around $19. The Enchantment is still the highest-priced MTG card in VOW and will likely hold this spot in the coming weeks.

Cultivator Colossus

Cultivator Colossus
Cultivator Colossus

Cultivator Colossus was the highest-priced card prior to the digital launch of VOW. Playable in multiple MTG formats, the seven-drop gains its power and toughness via the number of lands you control. It also puts a land onto the battlefield as an ETB bonus ability that can draw a card. 

Necroduality took its top spot on the VOW cards worth money list, but the plant beast is still worth around $18.

Manaform Hellkite

Manaform Hellkite

Manaform Hellkite is a four-drop dragon that can create an illusion with Flying and Haste based on the mana of a noncreature spell that you cast. It thematically fits into Izzet spell decks but may not make the cut due to its four-mana casting cost.

Prior to the release of VOW, Manaform Hellkite was valued at around $20. The post-global launch dropped Manaform Hellkite to around $14, with the dragon still the third highest-valued card within the new MTG Standard-legal set.

Avabruck Caretaker//Hollowhenge Huntmaster

Avabruck Caretaker didn’t blow up Standard with the digital launch of VOW but the human werewolf has consistently maintained its value. Priced at around $14, the Hexproof protector has the potential to spike in the coming weeks and is worth watching closely, especially if a Simic Ramp build should come together for the upcoming Innistrad Championship.

Sorin the MIrthless

Sorin the Mirthless

Sorin returns as a planeswalker card in VOW as Sorin the Mirthless. Slotting into Standard Control decks and Commander builds, the vampire planeswalker is valued at around $12. Of all the planeswalkers in VOW, Sorin is most likely to maintain his value and has the potential to spike in price following the upcoming MTG Arena Innistrad Championship.

Toxrill, the Corrosive

Toxrill, the Corrosive
Toxrill, the Corrosive

Toxrill, the Corrosive is a seven-mana 7/7 that could have an impact in formats like Commander and Standard. Slotting into Dimir Control as a solid finisher, the slug horror rose in value following the global launch of VOW. Priced at around $11.50, Toxrill, the Corrosive could rise in value even more within the coming weeks.

Cemetery Gatekeeper

Cemetery Gatekeeper
Cemetery Gatekeeper

There’s a cycle of five cemetery cards in VOW and Cemetery Gatekeeper comes in the color Red. The vampire is 2/1 with First Strike and has graveyard hate and the potential to ping an opponent for two damage.

Slotting into multiple Magic formats, Cemetery Gatekeeper is priced at around $11. The vampire still has the potential to rise in price in the coming weeks and is a good card to keep an eye on.

Chandra, Dressed to Kill

Chandra, Dressed to Kill
Chandra, Dressed to Kill

The planeswalker Chandra, Dressed to Kill will likely improve Mono-Red Burn and Aggro Commander decks but won’t easily slot into multicolored builds. Unable to find a home within the Standard format following the launch of VOW, the planeswalker dipped below $10 and is valued at around $9. Chandra, Dressed to Kill will likely continue to fall in price but should stay above $5.

Hullbreaker Horror

Hullbreaker Horror

Synergizing with Control decks looking for a strong finisher, Hullbreaker Horror is a seven-drop 7/8 with modal abilities upon casting a spell. The Kraken horror was valued at around $12 prior to the digital launch of VOW and rose to around $15 just before the global release.

But Hullbreaker Horror dropped with the global launch of VOW down to $9. Depending on the Standard meta for the Innistrad Championship, the Kraken horror could regain some of its value or continue to dip in price.

Olivia, Crimson Bride

Olivia, Crimson Bride
Olivia, Crimson Bride

Olivia is the focus of the VOW story and her legendary card Crimson Bride will see gameplay within the Commander format. Her future in Standard remains uncertain at this time, dropping the vampire noble from around $13 to around $9 following the global launch.

Cemetery Prowler

Cemetery Prowler
Cemetery Prowler

Cemetery Prowler, a Mythic Rare that’s seen gameplay in Standard via Gruul wolves, survived the global launch price drops. The wolf will also likely get added to werewolf tribal Commander decks. Priced at around $9, Cemetery Prowler has the potential to rise above $10 in the coming weeks.

Henrika Domnathi//Henrika, Infernal Seer

Henrika Domnathi//Henrika, Infernal Seer is one of the better Mythic Rare vampires in VOW. She was valued at around $17 prior to the digital launch and dropped down to around $5 with the global release of VOW. Since the official release of the new MTG set, though, Henrika Domnathi//Henrika, Infernal Seer has started to slowly rise in value, making her a VOW card to keep an eye on.

VOW launch losers

Launch losers are VOW cards that were once valued above $10 that have dramatically dropped below that threshold.

Cemetery Illuminator

Cemetery Illuminator
Cemetery Illuminator

Cemetery Illuminator, a graveyard hate card in Blue and a part of the VOW cemetery cycle, has potential in multiple Magic formats. The spirit was valued at around $10 heading into the global release and has since fallen to around $7. Don’t count Cemetery Illuminator out yet, though. The spirit has the potential to rise in value.

Kaya, Geist Hunter

Kaya, Geist Hunter
Kaya, Geist Hunter

Kaya, Geist Hunter is an interesting planeswalker that will likely see more gameplay in Commander than Standard. Despite not having a home in the Standard format, the planeswalker didn’t drop below $10 following the digital launch of VOW but did with the global release. Kaya, Geist Hunter is valued at around $5 and isn’t showing any signs of a revival.

Faithbound Judge//Sinner’s Judgement

Faithbound Judge//Sinner’s Judgement is a Double-Face VOW card in White with the potential to end a game with its backside Enchantment Aura curse. Valued at around $7 prior to the global launch, the Double-Face card dropped to around $3.50.

Cemetery Desecrator

Cemetery Desecrator
Cemetery Desecrator

Cemetary Desecrator is the Black VOW card in the cemetery cycle. Supporting zombie tribal, the six-drop 4/4 has Menace and modal ability options upon entering the battlefield. Cemetery Desecrator will likely see gameplay in Commander. The zombie was valued at around $7 but has dropped to $2 following the global launch of VOW.

Edgar, Charmed Groom//Edgar Markov’s Coffin

Edgar, Charmed Groom has potential within the Commander and Standard formats. The legendary vampire was the biggest loser with the launch of VOW, dropping from around $15 to $1.50. Commander players who want Edgar can scoop him up at a cheap price, for now.
